Tips for Connecting with Your Students via Natalie Priester

Natalie Priester with lots of books

Whether you are a brand new teacher or one with a bit more “seasoning,” you know that connecting with your students is key to a successful school year. Natalie Priester, a CUE member from southern California, recently attended a training where she got to meet middle school teachers from across the country. She asked them for their best advice on how to connect and build relationships with their students, then shared their responses in a quick video. While Natalie asked specifically about middle schoolers, the advice from these teachers can be applied to kids of almost any age.

You can see the video below, and we know you will come away with some great ideas to implement right away. You will also want to check out her channel, where Natalie posts videos about many topics of interest to teachers, including reading, blended learning, building relationships, and being a teacher and a mom.
